Every camera connected to Angelcam is equipped with a free status monitoring feature. We are checking the status of your camera continuously and if it goes offline, we will send you a notification.
How it works
We have two monitoring applications:
For devices with Angelcam Connector inside: AngelBox and optionally AXIS and 2N
For cameras h.264 and MJPEG cameras - or to be more precise: for h.264 and MJPEG video streams
Differences are described below.
Monitoring devices with Angelcam Connector inside
you can get a notification if the lost connection with Angelcam Connector takes 60 seconds in row - in other words, shorter outages are not reported
monitoring is enabled by default
by default, you will get notification via push notification
you can add more notification channels (e-mail, ...) and more recipients
Monitoring h.264 and MJPEG streams
you can get a notification if the lost connection with a device takes longer than 20 minutes
monitoring is disabled by default
notifications are being send by e-mail only
you can add two e-mail addresses
How to set it up
From your dashboard, choose a camera you'd like to activate Camera status/health monitoring on.
2. On the camera detail page, go to the "Settings" section:
3. Scroll down to "Camera status notification", enable the feature and fill in your email address where you'd like to receive online/offline notifications.
Save the settings and that's it :-) From now on, your camera is being monitored.
